April 2 Season Opener at Junction Pool. There is only one way to officially open NYS trout season - it is with First Cast. This annual event is a joint cooperation between the CFFCM and the Roscoe Chamber of Commerce. After the long winter rest, Junction Pool comes alive at 7AM with local businesses greeting guests with hot coffee, pastries, and warm conversation. After First Cast, visitors remain in the area to visit local fly shops, eateries, and favorite fishing holes. Shortly afterward you can see Ted Patlen?s famous fly tying demonstration in the museum and get a cup of Agnes Van Put?s famous soup in the CFFCM gift shop. On some occasions, the fishermen actually fish, but it is a day of reuniting after the long winter months with both local business and fly fishing community. Coinciding with April?s season opener, the CFFCM officially opens with new exhibits, attractions and the weekend Guest Fly Tyer Program. This year there is a special surprise that you will just have to wait and see what we are planning as the time gets closer.
That evening Roscoe?s Chamber of Commerce will again host the Annual Two Headed Trout Dinner at the Rockland House. For reservations and details call Annie?s Place 607-498-4139
